The Datomia® virtual appliance is a NAS storage machine. Its virtual hard drive can be accessed from any server within the secure network, using iSCSI, NFS or CIFS/SMB protocols.
the Datamizer® Modules
Datomizer® has the following modules running:
- Datomizer® Object Storage Layer
- Data Atomizer™
- iSCSI, NFS, CIFS
- Mounted file system (ZFS, EXT4 or BTRFS)
- Block storage
- Datomizer Intelligent slice cache® Smart Cache
- Public and private cloud connectors
The Datomizer® Object Storage Layer Module
Datomizer's ®’s object storage layer insures ensures consistent integration with public and private storage nodes. Object storage is vastly more scalable than traditional file system storage. This is because it is significantly simpler. Instead of organizing files in a directory hierarchy, object storage systems store files in a flat organization of containers and uses , using unique IDs to retrieve them.
Unlike traditional object storage approaches, such as Amazon S3 and Hadoop, Datomia's ®’s object storage uses patent pending Data Atomizer™ technology. This creates and stores InformationDNA, Data DNA® rather than triplicating every object, as is the case with Amazon, Azure or Hadoop systems.
The Data Atomizer Module
Datomia's ®’s patent pending Data Atomizer technology module creates InformationDNA out of Data DNA® from objects stored in the Datomizer® object storage. The final processed and encoded data chunks are called Data AtomsTM.
The number of Data AtomsTM created from every object is a parameter of the amount of storage nodes bound with a particular file system within the Datomizer® Virtual Vault.
Data Atomizer performs three major operations on a stored data object:
- 3D (three dimensional) data slicing and multidimensional mixing
- Military level encryption (AES-128, AES-196 or AES-256)
- Data encoding against failures with efficient and flexible algorithm
Datomizer® data encoding works in such a way that the Data AtomsTM do not contain any sequence of bytes from the original data object, even with the encryption option disabled.
